Depends what you want it for...

Don't expect to play HQ games or CPU intensive tasks because you'll be disapointed. It'll do everything a PC does, but in a Mac way...

The size of the thng means you can put it where you want.

If you do get one go for Core Duo [not Solo] and at least 1GB of RAM.

You can configure them on the Apple store and depending on what you configure the price can come to the iMac range with their 17/20" monitors.

Similair to "Powerless"'s comment, go for the core duo mac mini if you do intend to get one and upgrade the ram on it. Don't spend too much on it because the core solo and core duo ones still both have shared intel graphics which cannot be upgrades plus you will have to buy peripherals to go with it such as monitor,keyboard,speakers,mouse and so on unless you already have them. John Lewis sells mac computers, Pc World and Apples Uk store online. The prices of macs are all fixed from large reputable companies like they are all the same prices for any mac no matter what shop you buy them from unless Apple reduces the price slightly themselves like they have recently done on the I-mac from the basic 17" model going from £929 to £879 which still stands. Hope this helps

James
